Review:

Mandik offers readers an encompassing, up–to–date and engagingly written textbook.

The book along with its companion blog , is a useful, accessible, resource. All the problems are explored that an introductory course in philosophy of mind should explore. And the delivery is always rigorous, concise, clear and stress–free.

Given its emphasis on self–discovery, and given its scope and accessible style, the book can also be enjoyed (and easily digested) outside academia by any casual reader curious about what philosophers of mind are actually up to these days.

Not only is This is Philosophy of Mind a textbook from which many undergrads will learn a good deal; it is also one that many will genuinely enjoy. – Minds and Machines, June 2014

From the Back Cover:

The nature of the human mind and its relationship with the body and the outside world has long been a central concern of western philosophy, and the last few decades have seen great strides on explanations of consciousness, brain function, explications of the nature of perception and emotion, and many other issues. This is Philosophy of Mind presents a lively and accessible introduction to our current understanding of the core issues related to the philosophy of mind, including the mind–body conundrum, artificial intelligence, the nature of consciousness, and many more. While several chapters focus on the traditional positions on the mind–body problem, others offer insights on such contemporary topics as the problems of mental causation and free will, as well as theories of consciousness and intentionality. Specifically written for students of philosophy without a great deal of background, This is Philosophy of Mind helps to unravel some of the deep mysteries surrounding the nature of the human mind.
